the bombings. president obama marked the moment of silence from the white house. the u.s. senate held a similar tribute on capitol hill. it is still unclear what impact the boston bombings will have on the immigration debate in congress. but the topic of national security is clearly playing a more prominent role in the discussion. things got tense on capitol hill yesterday when senator chuck schumer sparred republican senator chuck grassley about the future of the legislation. take a look. >> a few ways to improve the bill all for an amendment when we start mark-up in may and let's vote on it. i say that particularly those who were pointing to what happened. the terrible tragedy in boston as a -- i would say an excuse for not doing a bill or delaying it many months oer years. >> i never said that. >> i didn't say you did, sir. >> i didn't say -- >> i didn't say you did. i don't mean you, mr. grassley. >> mr. chairman, i don't appreciate the senator demeaning the witnesses that have come here. >> earlier, senator patrick leahy who chairs the judiciary committee opened the hearing with some tough

, there is no limitation. president obama says this. some members of my party say the battle has no geographic limitations, and the laws of war apply. it's important to know that the law of war that they're talking about means no due process. boyleston street sure looked -- "i quote from the" wall street journal "editorial." boyleston street sure looked like a battlefield on monday and so did watertown on thursday night. the artificial distinction arises from undue focus on geography. the vital distinction for public safety is between common criminals who deserve due process protections and enemy combatants at war with the united states wherever they are. as for due process, the greatest danger to liberty would be to allow more such attacks that would inspire an even greater public backlash against muslims or free speech or worse. the antiterror types on the left and g.o.p. senators who agree that the u.s. isn't part of the battlefield are making the united states more vulnerable. americans erupted in understandable relief and gratitude on friday with the rapid capture of the terrorist brothers, but we sh
